Introduction


The Zoom Integration allows you to link your Zoom meetings to events that you create in the PDI System. This allows people to register for an event using a PDI web form, while simultaneously registering for the meeting in Zoom. This process requires that you have a paid Zoom account, that you link your Zoom account to your PDI account, create an event and associate a Zoom meeting with that event, creating a web form with that event, and lastly sharing that web form.

 

Linking your Account


Connecting your Zoom Account

Linking your Zoom account to your PDI account requires that you have a paid Zoom account, and that you have access to the Account Settings page within the PDI program. Inside of the Account Settings page click the Add Zoom Connection button followed by logging into your Zoom account.

Removing your Zoom Account

Removing your Zoom account to your PDI account requires that you have access to the Account Settings page within the PDI program. Inside of the Account Settings page click the Remove button next to the account you would like to remove from your account, followed by click the Yes button in the pop-up.
